DRRR is now part of ASSAY and Drug Development Technologies

Drug Repurposing, Rescue, and Repositioning (DRRR) is a newly developed and dedicated section that will be featured bi-annually in the well-established and MEDLINE indexed journal ASSAY and Drug Development Technologies. These special peer-reviewed collection of papers present techniques and tools for finding new uses for approved drugs – particularly for disorders where no animal model, physiologic abnormality, biochemical pathway, or molecular target has been identified.

This authoritative, rapidly peer-reviewed special section will feature original papers, application-oriented technology reviews, and reports in methodology and technology application including:

  • Interpreting assay outputs to enable alternate drug target identification
  • Pathway analysis and bioinformatics to identify and exploit drug promiscuity
  • In silico technologies to identify alternate drug targets
  • "Big Data" mining and side effect pattern analysis in clinical and healthcare repositories
  • Drug repurposing towards neglected and orphan diseases
  • Drug reformulation and alternative routes of administration

The DRRR section is under the leadership of Dr. Hermann Mucke, Hermann Mucke Pharma Consultancy e.U.
